Top 6 Handmade Baby Gifts

Shopping for babies is so much fun--way more fun than shopping with babies.  And if you have the time, making gifts for babies can be a lot of fun, too.  In the past I have made many baby gifts and even some things for my own little one.  It's so special to give (and receive) handmade gifts so I am sharing my top 6 favorite handmade baby gifts with links to patterns, tutorials and instructions. 

1. Nursing Cover - All moms who nurse need one of these.  They're $30 at many stores, but you can make one for a fraction using fabric of your preference!  (This is the only craft in this post that I have not made--but I do have one of these nursing covers and it was one of the most essential baby items I received!)

2. Diaper Cake - Perfect as a gorgeous gift or as a unique centerpiece at a baby shower.

My mom and I made this as a centerpiece for a baby shower. Well, she did all the work really, but I contributed. Isn't it awesome? We decorated the "cake" with crepe paper ornaments that I couldn't resist at an after-Christmas clearance at World Market.

3. Burp Cloths - This is a great sewing project for beginners and the results are professional and oh-sew-satisfying!  (Forgive my pun...)

4. Appliqued Tie Onesies (or try my no-sew version)

5. Itty Bitty Baby Dress - A sewing project suitable for "advanced beginners".  I made this one for my sweet little Elliott.  She wore it once.  Go figure.

6. Stardust Shoes - Cute little accessory!  Use coordinating fabric from your tie applique onesies or itty bitty baby dress to make the perfect gift set for a little boy or girl.

Happy crafting!
